Shots rang out late last night in Fort Myers, Florida outside a night club that was holding a “Swimsuit Glow Party” that was open to all ages. The shooting happened at the end of the night when party-goers were leaving the club and being picked up by their parents. Sixteen people were reportedly treated at the local emergency room, victims as young as 12 and as old as 27. Two people are confirmed as dead following the shooting. There is no information at this time as to a motive, but three people are being questioned in connection with the event.
From the nightclub’s Facebook page:
We are deeply sorry for all involved. We tried to give the teens WHAT WE THOUGHT WAS A SAFE PLACE TO HAVE A GOOD TIME. Ages 12-17. There was armed security as well as full security,inside and out. As the club was closing and parents were picking their children up…..that’s when all this took place. There was nothing more we could of done az you see it was not kids at the party that did this despicable act. Our condolences to all parties involved.
More information as it becomes available.
